    hello i had a question i recently purchased a lydian lion silver coin and i did three test on it, the magnet test the sound test and the weighing test. the first two test seemed like it would be silver however when i weighed it it came out to be around 31.9 i was curious to know if you think this is a fake.

    Don’t forget the scale needs to be calibrated with approved weights, i didn’t know that either. Also, the silver content can vary depending on the coin’s alloy content. If you, like me, just want to stay cautious when it comes to coins, we really need a coin book to know what weights we should be looking for when we pick up a new coin. Nice vid !!

    Hi nice video. I have some silver eagles but they weigh up to 31.49 grams and they’re supposed to be 31.1. but i’ve heard they can be a little heavy and still be real. do you have any heavy silver eagle? please respond with some weights if so. Thanks

    Your scale is not troy, is it?

  11. Deanishere says:

    Mike, very interesting, the reason your weights are off, about 10 % high, is that you are weighing them in Avoirdupois Ounces, precious metals are always weighed in Troy Ounces….

    Zeus quarter was a joke. Sorry I wasn’t clear. Glad you know that’s not Mercury on the dime. Love your videos man. Keep ’em coming!

  14. 1beinki says:

    Yes I know, But I call em Mercury dimes. I have never heard of a zeus quarter.

    The Maples are much to nice to be let out of their container.

    Wheres the Canadian Maple Beinki!!!?!

    Eh-hem It’s not a Mercury Dime. That’s an illuminist lie. The figure on the coin is Lady Liberty wearing a winged hat, which is a symbol for freedom of thought. Our Mint does not honor ancient greek/roman gods. Ever seen a Zeus quarter? Also, watch out for fake Morgan dollars. They’re everywhere. Need to stone test them as Chinese are making pretty darn good fakes these days too. Some Buffalo Rounds are fake too. I will not buy Morgans or Peace dollars. Too hard to barter them.

    I have the same scale and some calipres as well. There is a troy oz vs. oz setting. Also I found in the junk silver/older US coins, there is a great deal of variation but as long as your in the ball park you will be safe. I took my coins to a jewler and he had some electronic assay machine that told me the percentage of each metal in the coins and objects. The best thing you can do is buy the coins from a reputable dealer as he said.
